I told Colin about Pinterest – this link will take you to my boards – and when I have been spending loads of time posting websites to my boards, he tells me to start doing some of the craft things I have pinned. He’s dead right, but I want to crochet, knit, make jewellery, even sew – yes, ME. I even want to sew. Oh and I want to tat these gorgeous earrings. I’ve found patterns galore. Love this jacket. It’s crocheted, and so are these pieces I also want to do.
I don’t think I’ll attempt these but I love the picture so they got pinned on my Crochet board! I love those fishbones!
I’ve also found some super knitting tutorials, with new skills to learn as my knitting skills are basic and when I say basic, I mean it! Above is a pretty cast on stitch, and on the left is a basket to keep your knitting pins and crochet hooks organised. Your balls of wool will fill the inside of the basket and store your knitting project in between knitting sessions! I can learn how to unravel several rows of knitting so I won’t drop any stitches, when I have to go back and fix a mistake... and when the garment or whatever, is complete there are tutorials for invisible cast offs and how to stitch the pieces together!
This is fun! I’ve seen children playing with finger knitting before, but never arm knitting. Obviously you need thick yarn, and there are even tutorials about that! Make t-shirt yarn by cutting up an old t-shirt or two. It all depends on following the photos or instructions. Do yards and yards of French knitting like you made “rats tails” when you were a kid! Amazing!!! You could make a scarf this way. I think it would be way too hot for me!
I’d prefer something like this… Actually I’m not sure if this is knitted or crocheted. I think it looks crocheted!
sewing these cute little mice;
lacemaking these two funny giraffes,
I have loads of things I want to do.
But like Colin says, “Get on with them!” I’ll keep you posted!
Head over to my boards and have a look at all I have pinned!
Talk again soon.
